Premier league giant, Chelsea are lining up a move for Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope.
Reports from Daily Star says Blues boss Frank Lampard appears to have given up in Spanish goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga with several high profile mistakes and is therefore in the hunt for a world class replacement between the posts.
The 28 years old England international narrowly missed out on the Golden glove this season to Manchester City’s Ederson as the best choice.
The two time capped England Keeper still has three years left on his contract and will definitely not come cheap.
It is believed that any offers in the region of £50m could be sufficient to force Sean Dyche’s men to consider selling their prize asset to the Blues.
Pope has been impressive this year with many pundits predicting to see him get the nod as the first choice England goalkeeper to replace Everton shot stopper Jordan Pickford who has been criticized lately for some high profile mistakes.
Pope is thought to be keen on a move to one of the elite English clubs at this stage of his career as he attempts to establish himself as the country’s number one stopper.
